Good reading and this stood out for me:

Ive also had bad news for anyone looking to foster a design or
innovation-driven culture within an enterprise that doesn't at heart
"get" it. Unless the disciplines are acknowledged and embraced as
core values by every employee, they won't gain traction.

Couldn't agree more, Alain Breillatt of Pragmatic Marketing wrote a
very elaborate post on why not everyone can innovate like Apple, it
needs a shift in the company's DNA.
